I just traded my moddit out LST2 for a Summit. My 1st electric r/c. I've always had nitro or gas. I was looking at the hpi Apache C1, would you know if thats any good? It sure looks awesome. I've always liked the buggy's. As I've had many buggies, including the hpi 5B's.

Radio Controlled Toys

Children have always been fascinated with Remote Controlled (RC) Toys. Have you ever known a child who wasnít fascinated with a remote control toy? I certainly havenít. Every kid I know is fascinated with remote control toys. Moreover, itís not limited to just children. Even adults love remote control.

Regards.
Andy.

I have 5 total R/C cars. But the one's that I mainly use now are just my 1/16 Slash 4x4 VXLs. I have two of the Slash, but I also have a Nitro Sport, Nitro Rustler and 3.3 nitro Jato as well. The Jato and Nitro Sport have seen better days and the Rustler is the only one that still runs right. But I just got tired of fiddling with nitro set ups every day I would take it out. If the temperature changed, you had to adjust the settings to make the cars run right. Don't have to do that with the electric. Just plug it in, turn it on and go! My main Slash is semi customized. I have new RPM arms, Integy steel driveshafts, Integy aluminum wheels(they are heavy compared to the stock wheels), T-Bone Racing skid plates for the full underside and a Pro-Line F150 body that I had to cut a lot to fit properly on the Slash. Here is a picture of how it currently sits, yes, I know I need to clean it lol. I am going to make some videos this summer of it running. The nice thing about these small trucks is that I have been able to beat the hell out of them and never had anything break on them. The only problem I ever had was sand and gravel getting down into the drive shaft from the opening on top and destroying the drive shafts that way. But I fixed that problem but covering it with tape for now. I am trying to make an insert that fits down in there without crimping the drive shaft. Anyways, onto the picture.
